Friday 8 26 22 morning call

Hookipa yesterday afternoon. I like this way of laying down the wing in the bottom turn, like a windsurf sail.

That's the top turn he did right after it.
6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore

    • 2.4ft
      , 10s, S 180º
    • 1.2ft
      , 17s, SSE 165º
    • 0.7ft
      , 13s, S 185º


  • 1.7ft
    , 13s, S 185º
  • 0.8ft
    , 17s, S 175º

Mix of small long, medium and short period southerly energies at the buoys. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore

  • 3.3ft
    , 10s, NNW 340º


  • 2.1ft
    , 11s, NNW 340º


  • 2.1ft
    , 11s, NNW 345º

Small NNW energy continues at the upstream buoys. Home guess for Hookipa is chest to shoulder high.
